Reviews

Reviewer: ArthurofGermantown - - June 23, 2014
Subject: Spirit of the Ghetto
A classic book with classic drawings by Jacob Epstein. Written in a somewhat stiff style, the book draws a believable picture of life on the Lower East Side of Manhattan for Jewish refugees mostly from Russia. The clash of the cultures and the wrenching transition into a new world is heart rending.

The drawings by Jacob Epstein who went to become Sir Jacob Epstein pull you into the world of pathos, pain and struggle that these people endured.

The best "non-religious" book I've read of that world.
